To ensure implementation of the Ek Bharat Shreshtha Bharat scheme at the school-level, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) launched an initiative to promote use of languages other than the mother tongue among the students.
Students are encouraged to learn at least 100 sentences in an Indian language apart from their mother tongue. Each state is paired with one or two Union Territories and their respective students are supposed to learn about each other’s culture, languages and traditions.
All the CBSE schools, state board schools, schools managed by the Union Territories, and Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan are part of this programme.
